Corporate catering for people with food allergies and other special needs.
In the process of planning a corporate event, it is easy to forget to plan for people with food allergies/ intolerances or other special dietary needs. Food allergy occurs in around 1 in 20 children and in about 2 in 100 adults, and this number has been predicted to increase over the next years. Hospital admissions for severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) have doubled over the last decade in Australia. This is why it is important to address food allergies when planning a corporate event. In addition, there are a substantial amount of people following a certain diet or adhere to a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Common food allergies and special dietary needs
The most common triggers for people with food allergies are egg, cow’s milk, peanut, tree nuts, seafood, sesame, soy, fish and wheat. The most common allergy/intolerance is towards gluten. This means that many people have to follow a gluten free diet. When planning a corporate event, it is therefore important to choose a catering company with the knowledge and expertise to help you put together a menu that caters for everybody’s needs. You want all of your guests to enjoy similar dishes, respecting the guests with food allergy by avoiding singling people out with special menus.
